The album was crafted during intense studio sessions in LA and Fremantle and is a collaborative masterpiece with the help of producer James Ireland (of Pond and Cuco fame), Grammy-winning engineer Neal H. Pogue, and Anthony Dolhai. It’s a mesmerizing blend of indie and alt-pop with some electronic, garage, and house music vibes thrown into the mix.
